Interesting interview. I'd like to have a dictionary, thesaurus and spell-checker in my brain. Maybe also an encyclopedia. And I'd like little bugs that rein in my immune system when I get a bite or poison ivy or worse. And definitely a memory augmenter! And how about fat burner nanobots that nibble away at my waist line from the inside? And maybe when I'm older a little erector set? And we do need to worry about what these things may do to us and our environment. Much stronger checks need to be in place.
